Description"Newcastle University's £1 million geothermal drilling project on the Science Central building site (the site of the former Scottish & Newcastle Brewery) has found hot water over 1000m below the surface http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-13914718 Shells and corals in limestone rocks sampled by the bore hole showed that Newcastle had a tropical environment similar to the Bahamas http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/picturegalleries/8601403/Newcastle-upon-Tyne-v-the-Bahamas.html It is hoped that the source of geothermal energy can be used to heat buildings in the local area, helping them cut their CO2 emissions []" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2011.
